Halo 4 came out on November 6th.  The graphics are very realistic, and the gameplay is great.  The game was rated 9.8 out of 10 by IGN.

The graphics during the cutscenes in the campaign make the people look very real.  Kyle Blanchard said at first he thought they were actors, but then realized they were animated. During the gameplay the graphics change little from the cutscenes, but are slightly less realistic.  Along with improved graphics, Halo 4 has new sounds for the weapons, and vehicles making them sound more realistic. There is also now an instant respawn, and it seems as though the characters die faster.

Kyle Blanchard say’s that his favorite playlist is Big team slayer so far.  He can’t wait till the other playlists such as multi team, and team snipers come out.

“The most annoying thing was having to get used to the new controls,” said Aaron Horn.  They added in an all time sprint feature that is now the X button using the recon controls rather than the left bumper in Halo Reach.  After the first game he said he was used to the controls and already increasing his performance.

Ben Hicks on the other hand hates the game.  He doesn’t feel like it plays like the other Halo games.  However he did say that he probably was just being biased against the game, and that after playing it more he would get used to it and end up liking it.

Many of the new Halo players agree that the gameplay has become more like that of Call of Duty, but it still feels like the Halo gameplay.
